~Plot Synopsis~
Belle Shields (Rhea Mitchell), the local dance hall queen, is the sweetheart of bandit "Silent" Texas
Smith (William S. Hart) until she becomes fascinated with Alexander Austin (Robert Edeson), the
new town parson. The jealous Texas gets into a drunken saloon brawl over Belle, but when the
preacher comes to Texas' aid, the two rivals become fast friends. Belle marries Austin, but on a visit
to a nearby town, she slips back into her old ways and stops into a dance hall, where she arouses the
passions of dandy Jack Malone (Herschel Mayall). Realizing her mistake, she returns home but
receives a letter from Jack stating that he will come for her that night. She confides in Texas, who
intercepts Jack on the night stage and kills him in a gunfight. William S. Hart was not yet an
established star and earned third billing in this typically moralistic love-triangle Western.
